Welcome To
Prince George

For as many as 8,000 summers, the “people from where the rivers meet”, Lheit-Lit’en people of the Dakelh: Nation made their headquarters at the confluence of the Fraser and Nechako Rivers. In 1806 Simon Fraser camped there and a year later the Hudson Bay Company built Fort George. The grand city of Prince George now sits at the meeting of these two rivers. It is the largest service center for northern B.C. and surrounded by breathtaking wilderness.

Fort George Park is located on the site of original fort and a First Nations’ burial ground. Fort George Regional Museum in Fort George Park boasts a newly renovated ‘History Hall’, in which may take a virtual tour of the region’s early history. The Prince George and District Railway and Forestry Museum features the history of the industries still important to the economy of Prince George. And, of course, the Fraser and Nechako Rivers are brimming with life and possibilities for adventure.

The Huble Homestead Historic Site was a wagon road stopover, farm, and family home that dates back to 1905. It is located at the Fraser River end of the Goscome Portage, an extremely important trail for early explorers since it connected to the Pacific and Artic watersheds. Huble Homestead is now a “living museum” for visitors and can be easily reached by traveling 50 km north of Prince George, just off Highway 97 on Mitchell Road.
